Out of all the suburban neighborhood in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Southlake is one of the most desirable. Southlake boasts a Blue-Ribbon school district, plenty of beautiful open space, a plethora of shopping, and a vast array of things to do. In fact, the Dallas Morning News ranked Southlake one of the top neighborhoods for families in Texas.
Home to dozens of luxury subdivisions, it can be difficult to pick the perfect neighborhood for you and your family. Here’s our breakdown of some of the best areas to buy a house in.
Four great neighborhoods in Southlake
Winding Creek is the premier locale in Southlake for new construction homes. The first homes were built in 2013, and the subdivision is still being developed, meaning you can work with a builder to design your home from the ground up. Winding Creek is typically a location for estate-sized homes starting in the $900,000s. The picturesque setting, with rolling hills and a winding creek, is walking distance from Southlake’s Towne Square. Winding Creek is located within the prestigious Carroll Independent School District.
If you’re looking for a home that’s a bit more affordable, check out the lovely neighborhood of Stone Lakes. In this master planned community of about 335 homes constructed in the 1990s, you can find houses from roughly $450,000 to $700,000. Stone Lakes is located close to Carroll Senior High School on the south side of Southlake Boulevard. Homes in Stone Lakes frequently have three-car garages, large properties, and beautiful in-ground pools. In the center of Stone Lakes, you can wander around the serene 10-acre lake. You’ll have access to a community pool, basketball courts, playgrounds, and tennis courts.
A beautiful community of a little more than 300 homes, Monticello combines rural living with urban life. While you’ll have all the conveniences of Southlake and the neighboring Dallas-Fort Worth (Monticello is 15 minutes from the airport), mature trees, fresh water, and lush landscape make this neighborhood peaceful and serene. There’s 64 acres of parks with tennis courts, pools, and plenty of walking and biking paths. Schools are top-notch and consistently high-rated. Monticello homes are part of a homeowner’s association.
Families who desire a large lot size and a spacious interior should explore Wingate Hill. The median sale price of a home in Wingate Hill is roughly $900,000, and there’s a homeowner’s association. Wingate houses are known for their exquisite architectural details, luxury finishes, gourmet kitchens, and large square footages. Wingate is heavily wooded and shaded, giving the community a secluded, wooded feel. However, the neighborhood is close to Dallas-Fort Worth, the Southlake shopping district, and local schools within the Southlake Carroll Independent School District.
